Hi all, I want to setup the ecoPro site like the demo site however I noticed in the documentation that the relevant information is not available yet - are there detailed instructions on how to do this? I read the readme.pdf but this just referred to content on older themes and I don't think the link to the ecoPro files is available yet maybe? Thanks in advance, J

Ok after a little bit I have figured it out - thanks to your very easy to follow admin section - great job. One question I do have though is how do I make the main Logo of the site linkable not to the index page - in my specific case I want the logo to actually link to another URL and I cannot find where to do this in the code? Is it header.php but cannot see where? Also I see the theme has a nice layout for the cFORMs II plugin but mine is just running with the standard cforms css layout and looks a bit crap - any tips on how to get this to look like the demo one? Thanks

To change the URL go to your file editor under "appearance" There is a file called "_brand.php" On the third line change the text between the quotes: href="URL here" As far as cforms is concerned you can disable the default style in the plugin options menu

Super Support - all your answers worked perfectly. I only have 1 more question for you. On your homepage of your demo site you have the top Feature Page layout with slideshow and then a simple content "welcome" page. What I would like to do is have my blog begin under this slideshow instead of your "Welcome" standard page? how do I go about this. Right now when I setup the blog through SETTINGS > READING I get my blog fine but with a standard slim header (Like your demo blog) and I cannot find a way to have a full featured Page with slideshow like your current homepage but with blog under it? So again to be clear I would like the homepage to look like your demo but with the blog starting where your "Welcome" article is now in the demo??? Thanks again for your time and other than this I should be good to go. Look forward to your response. Thanks J

hmm.. You could start this by editing the 'feature-page.php' page template and including the _posts.php file for example try adding: `` in the template you're using and see what happens... we will probably add this 'template' you're requesting to a future maintenance release..

Nope this does not work - in my template I have the file 'template-feature.php' which I presume is what you are referring to but nothing happens with the blog page and I still have the slim header section instead of the feature slideshow. I was hoping this is possible on this theme to be honest so I guess il have to wait - when do you think this will be done? Thanks again J

We will look at what it will take to add it shortly and should get it by Eco 1.1
